Life Of A Catheter

Reprocessing single use medical devices is not a new part of the medical industry. Doctors and practices currently use reprocessed for a variety of procedures and regular needs. Reprocessing helps stop the waste that comes from single-use devices (or SUDs) and saves medical professionals and offices more money. From first clinical use, to reprocessing and inspection, a catheter has a long lifecycle. This lifecycle allows for catheters to undergo a highly rigorous system of cleaning, inspections and testing before being sold back to Doctors. See the full lifecycle of a NEScientific catheter below.
